2012 - Year in Review (Sort Of)

I haven't written a blog post in over a year - and it's not because I have nothing to say (I do!), but I have been incredibly busy traveling, photographing, and moving from Seattle to Denver to move in with my girlfriend (and gifted nature photographer) Sarah Marino. All great things and all much more important than keeping this dark lonely hole of the Internet universe partially illuminated. Also, and this is the real reason: I'm lazy.So instead of writing about all of the great things that have happened in the last twelve months I'll just briefly recap the year by showing some of my favorite photos that I have processed to date.

Many people are doing their "12 favorites of 2012", so in order to be different, and because I can't edit photos, I'm going to show my 20 favorites of 2012 (20 is in 2012 too, damn it!).

The photos are arranged in chronological order with the location above each photo.
